With the Veterans Administration being embroiled in a growing scandal about the medical treatments at the VA hospitals, I believe it is time we paid tribute to the man who represents the veterans of La Plata County.
Richard Schleeter is not an employee of the federal bureaucracy that is the Veterans Administration. He works for La Plata County – specifically for the veterans of La Plata County. Richard knows which button to push and knows the way through the labyrinth of the Veterans Administration. He represents us and works for us far beyond any comparable federal employee might do.
On behalf of the veterans of La Plata County, a hearty vote of thanks to Richard Schleeter.
